FORMAT Teams start in pools with placement based on each team's record. The results of pool play will determine placement of each team in single elimination playoffs. If divisions are combined, each age division will have its own bracket for playoffs. Each match will be the best of three sets with the first two sets to 25 and the third set to 15. No cap. Each team will be guaranteed five matches.
TEAM ENTRY FEE $500
JVA SANCTIONED Per JVA policy for a JVA-sanctioned event, all adults on the rosters need to have a current JVA Background Screen/APS training. They DO accept the USAV Background Screen/Safe Sport training. They DO NOT accept AAU Background Screen. However, regardless of the background check, everyone needs to go through the link and follow the instructions provided below from JVA.
All adults on the roster must show as verified under "BG Screen. Ver." on the roster. In order for this to show up, all adults on the roster will need to visit JVA Registration and do the following based on membership status:
*If they have a current USAV membership, on the affiliations page in that link select USAV. They will then be able to enter in their USAV#. They will NOT need to take the JVA training.
*If they do NOT have a current USAV membership or JVA membership (aka only AAU), they will need a JVA screening. It is $38 for a two year screen/training. [Basically this means if you did not have a background check through USAV or JVA, you will need to have this.]
REGISTRATION DEADLINE TBD by 11:59PM
ROSTER DEADLINE TBD by 11:59PM
